Fast Forward with the New Intel Xeon Scalable Platform

Transformation is happening all around us.

Adopting technology to accelerate innovation and tackle business challenges is becoming pervasive across industries—financial services, life sciences, energy and agriculture. Transformation relies on powerful, scalable, intelligent and secure infrastructure. The Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor family turns the data center into a flexible, adaptable solution center for the most data-hungry, resource-demanding workloads.

Major Leap Forward

On July 11, Intel had its biggest data center launch in a decade. Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors go well beyond a processor family upgrade. Five years of engineering and development went into designing silicon with the most advanced features built in. Built from the ground up, the newest Xeon family of processors is designed for the data center, and for the computing megatrends of today and tomorrow. #XeonScalable is the infrastructure of the future.

Heavy Workloads Demand Optimal Performance

Growth and opportunity in the technology industry is being driven, in large part, by the megatrends of cloud economics, artificial intelligence and analytics, and the network transformation that 5G promises. These trends create demand for high-performance, secure and agile infrastructure where compute, network and storage are optimized for a wide range of workloads.

Rising to the challenge, data center transformation begins on the inside with #XeonScalable. This is a completely re-architected microprocessor designed for these megatrends, with greater integration capabilities and workload-specific accelerators.

#XeonScalable Delivers

The #XeonScalable platform provides scalable performance, pervasive security and the agility to quickly offer new services and capabilities. It represents the largest gen-on-gen performance improvement in a decade, delivering up to:

  • 1.65X performance boost
  • 2X the data protection performance
  • 4.2X greater VM capacity
  • 65% lower TCO

The family offers four configurations: Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze—accommodating various workloads and scaling as demands escalate.

The entry point of the new family is the Intel® Xeon® Bronze processor, appealing to small businesses and ideal for basic storage server applications. At the pinnacle is Intel® Xeon® Platinum which offers up to 28 cores, 8+ sockets and 12TB of memory for the ultimate performance for mission-critical, real-time analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence and multi-cloud workloads. The midmarket and higher end data centers can be well served with Silver and Gold configurations.
